The first monthly meeting of 2018-19 will be held in September. Date: TBA.
Summer greetings from J.E.B. Stuart HS PTSA!
Q: Wait, what? J.E.B. Stuart HS? But the name of the school has been changed to Justice HS. Why hasn’t the PTSA changed its name?
A: Great question! During the April PTSA meeting, the PTSA proposed that we change the name and structure of our organization from a Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) to a Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO). During the May meeting, we presented information about the pros and cons of each organization, along with our recommendation. At the upcoming September meeting, there will be a panel discussion consisting of representatives from both PTA and PTO perspectives. At a special meeting in October, current PTSA members will vote on whether to continue to be a PTSA or change to a PTSO. The long answer is: Once we know the status of the PTSA after the October election, we will change its name to either Justice HS PTSA or Justice HS PTSO.
All Stuart parents, teachers, and students (regardless of PTSA membership) are welcome to attend PTSA meetings. Details for the next meeting are listed below. Simultaneous Spanish interpretation will be provided.
